    FL is not following mandatory mask/social distancing protocol

    Many Americans are just arrogant. They will find out the hard way when either they get Covid-19 or a family members dies from Covid-19. Our education system has failed us. Many people can't critically think, fail to look at facts or believe in conspiracy theories.
  2. The more the virus is allowed to run rampant, the more likely healthcare workers may be exposed to the virus. Healthcare workers have already died from the virus. There isn't enough PPE. The US had time to prepare and we didn't. I value my health and happiness over money. In my opinion, the US has their priorities backwards. Of course, we can't stay closed forever. Look at Canada, the UK and other developed countries. We are so far into individualism that we are failing. Other countries have a far better quality of life than we do. If we can't take care of our vulnerable, what does that say about us?
  3. Covid-19 has killed thousands in a short amount of time vs individuals killed during a flu season. There is currently no vaccine available to everyone. I realize there are clinical trials happening. There is a flu vaccine. While definitely not perfect, it can sometimes lessen the severity of the flu if an individual is infected with influenza.
  4. Incompetence definitely, possibly malfeasance. Our Federal Government did not act quickly to begin with.

    Malpractice Insurance

    Hi, What would be the appropriate way to ask HR through the agency you work with to provide you with written proof you are covered under their Insurance plan? I have my own malpractice insurance but I just want to make sure it is the appropriate coverage. Right now my personal coverage is "workplace insurance" meaning my employer would be primary. Please advise. Thanks

    Least stressful nursing specialty

    I do in home case management. Least stressful job I have ever had. No direct nursing care. You get to know your patient and have time to teach and educate about ways to improve their health.

    New grad 6 weeks orientation?

    I think 10-12 weeks is more appropriate for a new graduate nurse. I got almost 12 weeks.

    "Don't Work" Isn't An Answer

    It is definitely possible to work during nursing school but it depends on many factors. With the nursing program I was in, it was 40 hours per week with just class and clinical. Then there was homework assignments every night. I was able to work part time but it was extremely difficult.

    What is up with these Sickle Cell Patients?!

    I don't have sickle cell disease but I did want to say I have chronic pain. I can have significant pain but still be calm, talkative, watch TV, etc. I suggest earning CEUs in pain management. I believe this might help your practice greatly.

    Becoming a nurse with scoliosis

    I have scoliosis that is significant and I've been a nurse for 8 years. It is possible to be a nurse as long as you take care of yourself.

    Burned out

    I've been a nurse for 8years. I've done critical care, med surg, hospice and home health. I now do case management which can be enjoyable. I suppose I am just asking for guidance bc I know deep down I'm burned out. It's hard to deal with the family members who have impossible demands no matter how hard you try to help. I care about the patients I help and doing a good job. I know you guys understand being burned out. Someone who has been there please advise.

    I am a new nurse and I had a pt make a false accusation.

    I'm sorry this happened to you. I think the charge nurse could of handled this better. You will encounter other patients and family members in your career. All you can do is do your best and chart the care you gave your patients. :hugs:

    Epic Health Services

    I also don't understand why they push low acuity nurses to take high acuity cases. This seems extremely dangerous.

    Epic Health Services

    What the heck? That sounds disorganized. Do you know why they are always hiring nurses?
